I wish to thank my buddy Miltiades for the organization of this grand game! :o
It was a game he was carefully planning for at least 4-5 years before to the smallest detail!
Because I was there, I can testify that the pictures posted do not give justice of how exciting and nail-biting this game was!
Unless... our friend posts some more pictures, especially focusing on the Japanese and French legations I was defending  lol  ;)
And, naturally, on the British embassy, which was very hard pressed! Cheers!
Well done, Miltiades!

What a beautiful table and what envy, to be able to play that way. Being able to display that scenery and play such an emblematic scenario must have been wonderful.

Congratulations on having been able to carry out the project and have been able to enjoy it

Great looking game!

The game must have been interesting with so many walls - did you have any real adaptations for this?

Love how the colors work together - other, very nice setups, travel a more 'garish' color scheme.  Yours is much better - at least to my tastes.  Sincere flattery in the offing (as in 'imitation is the sincerest form of flattery').

It is also an embarrassing reminder that I have the whole of Old Glory's 15 mm legations set plus a German legation I put together from their stuff - and more for the other buildings, including ruins, and lots and lots of their appropriate figures.  And it all sits waiting to be worked on.  The hazards of the hobby, I suppose..  I did 'complete' my Tartar wall - a full 12' in length.

Really nice.  Also curious how the walls impacted the game.  (Are the Oshiro items 15 mm or 25 mm?)
